Oroville to Quincy road closure ?

Oroville to Quincy via Bucks lake road is a great ride, but I've heard there is a closure on that road. Anyone have any info ?

When we were up there in June for the Quincy rally it was closed. A large chunk is washed out, fell into the canyon. Didn't stop several riders from riding across the gap on the higher dirt shoulder though...

Doesn't seem like fixing that washout is a high priority...

I have squeezed past the washout along the shoulder, just don't look down into the big hole where the road used to be. Next mile or two was covered in leaves and pine needles due to lack of traffic, then it was perfect! Had the road all to myself.

Thanks for all the info. Heading for Bucks lake in 3 weeks. Think a couple of gold wings could squeeze by ? BTW where is the washout ?

What you do and what normal, sane people do is entirely different.

my bud who lives near the highway says the traffic has decreased by about 80%, but the sport bikes still are still going by...

That's kinda the main route for the Chico Riders group. We used to ride it almost every weekend. It was washed out back then too (in what looks like a different spot).

Interesting; apparently they are still getting by on that narrow shoulder on the left. He heard they are not going to fix it until next spring as the states priorities (Hwy 1-Big Sur/etc.) is still going into winter.

{Also, this guy got me into dirtbikes about 1962', he & Bros rode them around here; later in the 70's on his Dads ranch in Auburn. Got me my 1st rides on mini-bikes, HON trails 50's/70's, etc. He stopped riding in the late 70's because marriage/ kids, but says every time they go by he wants back on a bike. I beat him up every time we talk he needs to get a bike! Groups of bikes roaring by would drive me nuts! }

Rode 162 up to Quincy and back down on 70 today. Road past the washout was slick, still a little wet with leaves and pine needles on it from lack of use. Really washout-Quincy was wet and slick. Felt the bike "move" on me a few times. Really didn't want to go down out there where there is very little traffic coming by to find me. Was happy to get to 70 where the traffic dried the road.

The washout was easy to get around on a smaller bike, it's wide enough. No signs of any repairs being done.

It is definitely wider now. Looks like someone has put some work into it.
